T-Gap invited to governor’s mansion
Fifty Tesnatee Gap Elementary School chorus students will be heading to Atlanta next month for a special occasion.
The Tesnatee Gap Singers is one of 48 singing groups that will be showcased at the governor’s mansion in Atlanta. The students will perform Monday, Dec. 10, said Joel Rogers, the school’s music and chorus teacher.
The Tesnatee Gap Singers include third- through fifth-grade students who were chosen to go by audition only. The students will perform several traditional holiday songs, including Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Shalom Aleichem, a traditional Hebrew song, Rogers said. After the performance, the kids will be able to tour the mansion.
To participate in the event, Rogers said that he had to send a CD and a photo of the group, along with calling in within a certain time frame. This is the second time the group and some of its members have been to the governor’s mansion, Rogers said.
When asked if they were excited, the students cheered loudly during practice.
